Thread: Returnal - PS5

  1. #21
    Proper game, and the people who are moaning have probably not finished it and seen it all, yet they are saying it not a top title, it is the only game on the system not a remake or on other systems, its built for the PS5 and a worthy first year game.

    whelp the devs just put put a tweet warning people to not have auto update on as their is a patch going live today (May 5th 7pm no patch notes yet its probably just fixing the pre-order suit glitch), if you have auto update on it will shut the game down and patch it for you in rest mode. This kind of highlights why their Rest mode save system is not fit for purpose. A system shutdown a power-spike or as happened to me my cat sitting on the plug and turning off the tv could prematurely end your run.

    Somebody on Reddit pointed out that The Binding of Issac has save states that are wiped on death (they update each room) as this is quite corridor based it makes sense that they could add a system like this so you don't have to commit 4 hours of your life every-time you fancy a full run. i really want to play this tonight but if my kids want to play the ps5 with the current system my ps5 is now a Returnal machine.

    Edit--- so if you plug a keyboard into the ps5 their are various testing features still active on the game at present

    Nothing massively useful as everything requires you to grind still, their is a button command for jumping straight to biome 3 one for dropping weapons at your current lvl and one that warps you back to the ship.

    The patch will probably wipe out the current dev/test input codes you can put in to generate better guns from the start!

    Instantly probably making physical copies bump up in price!

    Maybe we could make an Idiots guide to returnal, no story spoilers just gameplay tips things we've found out so far

    Not sure if its widely know but in the first area you can return to the ship and rest to Regen your health as many times as you want, it doesn't even Regen enemy's either. With the warps being next to bosses and challenge zones its well worth topping yourself off before these.

    Mele stuns enemy's, i initially backed away from the bigger enemy's but you can melee them to stun them and they stay down for quite a bit you can use this to get to cover or lay into them if you get caught by their melee attack.

    Range is your friend in early game the first boss is best tackled at range so the shotgun is rubbish for him and a lot of the enemy's in the first area aren't great if your too close either, the first bosses melee is his hardest attack to avoid and the further away you are the better chance you have of avoiding him.

    Don't update the game mid-run

    The difficulty aspect is definitely more an irritation of my own than the game, the one thing I'll definitely hold by though is this might be a PS5 exclusive but it's very blatantly a mid-budget PS4 project bumped to the new system. It's not 'next-gen' in any way at all. Still, wish Sony had more true exclusives on the cards.

    Artistically, Returnal will give most AAAAA titles a run for their money. The sound design is remarkable. The Prometheus vibes are nailed.

    On top of the tip about returning to your ship. If you are at full health the health containers turn into resin that will increase your health bar so it’s worth avoiding all health pickups and then scooping them up once you’ve healed at the ship.

    This might be obvious to all but the sticky vines are elevators to higher levels where pickups can be found and the chests behind gates are opened with a nearby switch, if you aim in the right direction you get an audio cue.

    Post patch, you can only go back to your ship once to rest.

    Oh and that's when the patch re-releases, as it got pulled because of a Save error. I've left the patch on and I was getting said errors, but I rebooted the PS5 and it seems to be gone. Probably done some save game damage or something, but seems ok so far. If you have the patch and want rid of it, just re-download the game from the store.

    I saw they added Souls-esque ghosts of other-users dying in-game which you can inspect and choose to Avenge (for 4 Ether) or Salvage (for 3? Ether). I chose to avenge and my god I was put in the ring with a horrible baddie who ring-fenced me in with it, bullet hell and electrocuted the ground. I was dead in seconds

    I still can't beat the first boss and I've died about 20-odd times. I keep going back for me punishment though.

    So to start my evening two hours into a really solid run the game crashed i had amazing weapons and pick ups and it was AlI going pretty well until the crash, before restarting i updated the game which was supposed to sort out the crashes but..... i got the save glitch every-time i interacted with anything it popped up a massive screen filling corrupted save Message which is interesting as its obviously auto saving data every time an item drops why? they don't persist through runs?

    Housemarque need to employ some game testers as this is just crap, and after last nights debacle Ive lost complete faith in the game under its current set up. I think i'm gonna shelve it till its at least in a stable state as i don't like being a beta tester on a 70 game. My top tip for those that do continue is if your at the start of a run leave the dead bodys of yourself alone as they will **** you up.
